March Madness Continues Wait! What?

Alien Adduction
3 Member of the Halian Masters recruiting team

I’m more than a little worried at the moment as I think I might’ve been abducted by aliens and replaced by this automaton hydrophilic entity.

Amazingly it’s now 11 days since the end of February and Binge is somewhat shockingly still bingeing on the swimming. What on earth is going on here?

I know for a fact that the  Binge does not possess the will power or endurance to keep this going.

In the new post February Fitness Challenge Bingeworld I am extremely doubtful whether this will continue but I’m going to run with it for now.

But to stop myself getting too carried away I have officially designed Friday as Dryday and I’ve cut out the double dipping days.

Not sure why I bother as I’ve taken to swimming the Durham Tri Swim session on a Saturday afternoon which is nearly twice as long as any other session, so the Saturday workout more than compensates for a swim free Friday. The one redeeming feature of this session is the views of the River Wear and Durham Cathedral as I walk across the new footbridge.

weightsI’m still persevering with the Weird and Whacky Ways to inflict pain upon yourself by going to the Gym which allows me to complete the red and green circles in the health app on my watch. I know I know I am a very sad person.

I had an interesting encounter with a Leg Press machine in the Gym on Monday when I failed to properly rack the weights and the plate propelled my knees backward towards my ribs with rather more force and intensity than I anticipated. Talk about a crunch!

Being the drama queen I am I was sure that I’d cracked a rib, until Bob pointed out that the area of pain was below my rib cage!

Interesting week (8 days ) actually booked ended by a couple of heavy sessions at Durham, the Tuesday session was notable for the arrival of a baby Master “Poppy Paris Hat” who
